Health Concerns

Posted Wed 9 Jan 2019 4.01pm by ElleCee94

I was just diagnosed with psoriasis, and both my dermatologist and various online articles have said that psoriasis can cause heart issues. I am 24, and apparently people 25 and under can develop problems like heart disease, arthritis and cancer. I have not yet begun treatment (insurance issues, but I will get my medication soon) and I am worried about my psoriasis becoming more severe. So far it is one my scalp with small patches on my right arm and let leg, but the risk of disease is what has been on my mind.

If anyone has any advice on this, please let me know.
